1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    ^The result of their generous return policy, I'd think.

    Go to any Ralph Lauren store that has C&J shell on display and it'll be crazy faded in color.

    That's a nice collection. I have only one ranger moc, from the Cape Cod collection. Nothing special for this group, but I've gotten a lot of great wear out of them and they are still going.

    What are the details on where you picked up each? I'll assume Loden = Union Made. The one on the Barrie seems unusual. I think Van is standard for this style, isn't it?

    Thank you. Yes, the Loden came from Union Made, the second from Roden Gray, and the last from the Bureau Belfast. Most of the moc-toes I've seen have the van, but all the moc-toes at The Bureau have the barrie.

    Black shell Indy boots today. I'm a huge proponent of the machine stitching on the Indys, and I love these, my #8s and whiskey ones, all with that stiching. I even sent my cigar pair with hand stiching to a good home (a fellow SFer, of course) last summer, and haven't regretted it for a second.

    As you can see, the right shoe is still slightly lighter, but I used dark brown polish to balance them out. Sorry, I do not have any before pics.

    Thanks - I like them too! I do not, however, know where my wife got them. I'll ask and respond here later.

    Really nice pair of Indys. Looking for one of those for myself in my size, unfortunately haven't had any luck. I think I fell in love with cxl, constantly looking for new pairs [​IMG].

    P.S. Like your Momos [​IMG]

    I'm looking for sites that carry boots on the Aberdeen, Hampton, Plaza and potentially the Grant Last. The more common Barrie and Trubalance do not work for me. I see the shoemart has a few options, can anyone else point out sites with stock? I'm guessing there might be a few collaborations out there. Thanks.

    As always, when looking for boots or shoes in a particular last, call the Alden stores (SF, NYC, DC) to see what they have. Alden NYC and Alden DC both stock captoe boots on the grant last (NYC has them in black and color 8, DC also has them in cigar)...
